Additional six week periods, preferably two, would enable those students to omit one semester of Ugb school typhig and move right into the second semester. Letter typing and short manuscript work would be the basic of instruction te these addi¬ tional seasions. Typfaig Is a skill tiiat is no longer reserved only for the offlce bound. The typewriter has become a personal-use item. It is vital that our students leam to use this machine as early te life as possible. Tliis skill can hdp tlieia hi school aa well as te later life. During the summer school program, the Huntiey Elementary School has been able to offer typerwriting to elementary students for the first time. Fifty-six students, in grades 5-8, are under the instruction of Mary Ellen I^ugg.
